YBA Kanoo selects Fujitsu for all PC and laptop needs
Deal will provide over 4,000 YBA Kanoo group employees with Fujitsu devices
Bahrain's Yusuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo (YBA Kanoo) group has selected Fujitsu to replace all of its PCs and laptops.
Under the deal, more than 4,000 employees will be equipped with computers from Fujitsu's client computing devices (CCD) range. Fujitsu's solutions will be issued to all division of the group across the GCC, including Kanoo Shipping, Kanoo Logistics, Kanoo Machinery, Power & Industrial Projects, Oil & Gas, Kanoo Travel & Holidays, Joint Ventures, Kanoo Properties and Kanoo Retail.
Fujitsu said that by standardising it's ICT infrastructure with Fujitsu, YBA Kanoo will be able to homogenize its purchasing process and receive faster technical support services, which will in turn ensure smooth business continuity for the group, as well as their customers.
Extensive configuration options for the Fujitsu Notebooks and Desktops will provide YBA Kanoo with the flexibility and convenience to run applications dependably. Every three months, the Group's need for new computing devices will be calculated and state-of-the-art Fujitsu computing devices will be delivered with the best prices and services, ensuring improved lifecycle management of the workplace system.
Fujitsu Onsite certified partners, who are in direct contact with the Fujitsu help desk in the countries that the group operates in, will ensure a close relationship with Kanoo's IT team and warrant a smooth day-to-day operations and escalations, if any.
Fawzi Ahmed Kanoo, interim group CEO commented: "We chose Fujitsu based on its comprehensive portfolio of computing devices they had on offer which is tailor-made to meet the needs of everyone in our group, from a sales team to top management. With our Group's growing portfolio across the Gulf, we were on the lookout for an IT partner who comprehends our business thoroughly and offers the right technology with the right commitment. Having worked with Fujitsu for close to a decade, they proved to be the obvious choice."
Farid Al-Sabbagh, vice president and managing director, Fujitsu Middle East added: "We have had a long-standing, successful relationship with YBA Kanoo that has allowed us to demonstrate first-hand the merits of our streamlined processes, centralized service desks and support. We truly understand their vision and through our IT support we can help ensure smooth business continuity and gain a better life-cycle management driving in cost efficiencies, so the group can continue to focus on its mission of ‘Delivering Sustainable Excellence' to the region."
